Here is a dish that my mom often makes for dinner! With the mouth-watering flavor of 紅燒 hongshao sauce, no one can resist this tofu dish. The sauce is not hot, but made from soy, ginger and sugar.

And in fact ! In France, Wood ears / Jelly ears are more difficult to find so you can replace them with button mushrooms. In addition, if you like celery, you can cut it and add it at the same time as the onions, it will give a fresh taste to the dish!

Good tasting !
